    Advice to Management

    The reason I left was because of your current store manager . You guys don’t have to take care of your employees in the store level

    I worked at GrandVision full-time

    Pros

    Great discounts on glasses and you learn a lot. Free exam. Nice employees.

    Cons

    Doctors are hard to work for and have you do way too many jobs other than your own. Pay is not great, and you are required to work Saturdays. You also only get 5 days a year for PTO. That's inclusive of sick time and vacation. There were a couple really nice people that worked there. Crazy amount of turn over. They put a lot of pressure on you to sell glasses, but expect you to do a lot of other things as well, so...

    Advice to Management

    I worked at GrandVision full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Free pair of glasses every year, free coffee. No other prons.

    Cons

    Weird degrading management attitude to the employees. A LOT of politics in the office. Employees getting promoted based on management favoritism. Projects are canceled every month. No long-term strategy. Very unstable environment. The company is in a steady decline for the last years.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck failing! It's never too late to change but with the current management squad, there is no hope! Soon, everyone will start abandoning the company.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at GrandVision full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good core values with a relatable executive team. Excellent support staff pay and training.

    Cons

    Frequent (though understandable) structural changes makes progression feel prolonged by rebuilding key relationships.

    Advice to Management

    The clinical and management pay scales feel out of sync since the most recent OA pay rise - there is less incentive around the first level of management (team leader) especially for those with gold level training.
